Slowing Things Down
I've had an old song stuck in my head for the past few days. If your heart lies with 90's country music the way mine does you'll know the one:
I'm in a hurry to get things done. I rush and rush until life's no fun. All I really gotta do is live and die, but I'm in a hurry and don't know why."
Specifically this part of the song is on repeat in my mind so I'm taking that as a sign. A sign that I need to slow down. The lyrics are so accurate. I feel the constant need to use up every single gust of energy I have each day. I've been staying up late and getting up early. I'm practically living out of a suitcase trying to balance the things I need to do and the things I want to do. I know most of this is because I'm working on starting my business so my mind is literally never at rest and steadily engrossed in how much there is to do!
And I'm not complaining. I love my life, my friends, my work. But sometimes when life gets crazy we need to remember to find some "me" time. So tonight I'm staying home, baking some pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, and then curling up with some wine and a book I started weeks ago and haven't touched since. Heck, I might even go crazy and sit down to paint my nails!
Have a great weekend ♥
